Hey everyone! So I really wanted to get this review done tonight for you. It has been one week that we have been sleeping on our mattress and we wanted to give you a review of it. I will continue to update you as well over the next few months.
So first off, we purchased the Zinus Green tea memory foam 12 inch mattress. We purchased ours on amazon and for a King size mattress it cost us only $340. I searched all over amazon to find a mattress that had great reviews and this one has over 23,000 reviews and it still had a 4 star rating. I was pretty excited when I placed the order!
When the mattress arrived, luckily my hubby was home! It came in a box almost as tall as me and was decently heavy. It took me and the hubs to get the mattress out of the box and opened. It is a mattress that comes all folded up and once it is opened, it starts to expand and gets to reach its full size in 24 hrs. We laid it on our guest room floor and waited for it to expand. It had a slight odor which is completely normal. It happens when they are boxing up the mattresses. The odor didn’t last too long and was gone before we knew it.
We ended up breaking the rules and sleeping on it that night because we were too impatient. It is really squishy to the touch, but when you lay on it it definitely has a firmness to it. But because it is memory foam, your body sinks into it, but not in a bad way where you can’t get out of the bed.
Okay and here is what you really want to know… how did we sleep on it? Do we like it or love it? But what you need to know first is that my husband is very “picky” when it comes to his sleep. Well not necessarily picky, but I should say that he has a tough time sleeping on just anything. And as for me, I could sleep on a jagged rock and get a good night of sleep.
The first night the hubs did not sleep good at all. He tossed and turned and had a really rough night. But then the next night was different. He slept better and said he was really liking the bed, but it was still a little too firm. Well it is exactly one week in and he is loving it! He said he hasn’t had any back pain and it is getting comfier every night. He still says that the bed isn’t as comfortable to lay on as our old bed(which I completely agree) but he gets a better sleep on this bed.
As for me, I love it! I sleep really well and I have no complaints. I don’t want to get out of bed in the morning(but that is kind of the usual thing around here). I do really love it and I am so happy we purchased it!
So I would say if you are in the market for a mattress that doesn’t cost a fortune, but still gives you great support, is comfortable and super nice to sleep in, then this is a bed for you! Just make sure you have someone to help you unbox it.
I hope you enjoyed this review and as I said earlier, I will be updating you over the next few months as we sleep on it more and more.
